I figured a lot of people go here, so I would get a lot of replies here

After saving up about 2800 bucks over the course of 4 months, I was saving for a speed3 down payment. Was planning on trading in my 06 gt 3 and getting an 07 or 08 ms3.
Had no idea what my insurance increase would be, but I never called and found out.
I was convinced by a few friends to just dump the 2800 into my car and ended up getting my custom exhaust, rims, emblems, sharkfin, ms cai, and springs. I ran out of money for the shocks, and keep in mind I havent put the springs in yet :[
But now Im kind of bummed and wished I kind of kept saving for the ms3, but I do like the sedan look a lot better.
I wish they made the 2010 speed3 in the sedan .

Idk, just needed to vent.

What do you guys think?

Re: :[

i've changed my mind several times and decided i would keep my '06 S GT. it was especially difficult when they announced you could get pearl white for 2008.5. i guess mazda heard the crying about canada getting the best color and not us.


i'm keeping it because i chose it to be a practical commuter (60+ miles) that got decent mileage (28mpg) mixed, but had decent balls for darting around corners and tight twisties (the fun is evident in the sub 20mpg if i am scaring my passengers, lol)

if i got to the speed, i have to pay for premium gas (who knows where the prices will go), buy more of it, because I would have fun for sure, every day.

I just got my car the way I like it. Dropped on mazdaspeed springs (for the mazda 3).

I don't even push my car to it's limits all that often. what do i need all that extra power for? I guess I'd drive for fun more..lol

i like the fact i am sort of environmentally friendly. i allows me to have a "Holier than thou" attitude when addressing gas guzzlers.
